Stripes under Snow

{a long time ago...}
How much snow do we have here in upstate New York? Do you remember this photo of my deck from months ago?
Well, this morning it looked like this. Can you see the tiniest hint of the striped tablecloth?

Pretty and gorgeous drifts of snow, but dangerous with all the weight since it's a second floor deck. I shoveled off the deck, then raked the snow off the roof unto the deck and then... shoveled off the deck once more.

And how did I find a snow roof rake since all the stores here are sold out? Social networking, my friend. One request on Facebook and my friend S dropped off a roof rake to borrow within the hour. Amazing!

(Feel free to be my Facebook friend, too!)


  1. Ahhh...I don't know about you but I'm sure looking forward to the reemergence of all that green!!

  2. Love this picture. Wow, so much snow. Being from New Zealand I never tire of snow pics...

  3. Woah, that's some pretty snow!!! And a very cute little stripey detail!

  4. I'm pretty sure it'll pass. Everything will go back to it's gorgeous self in time. Have a lovely day, Kellie xx

  5. I lived in upstate New York for awhile in the 90's. So much snow! I feel for you.

    Good news on the rake!

  6. Oh that is so sad :( Mine looks like that too... Spring can get here anytime!
    That was nice that your friend helped you out too!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. I am not from snow country so I am amazed. In California we have enjoyed nice weather but in a few days our high will only be 47 degrees. Now I know that probably feels like summer to you but that is really cold for me.


A comment? I'm so happy to hear from YOU!
